I've been trolling with a jointed Shad Rap for a while now with good results, but last June, a huge Canadian Northie broke my line and took my favorite one back into the drink after I had landed him (I really thought he was played out). When trying to replace it, I found the color configuration has been discontinued. I was wondering if anyone else uses a jointed deep diver type of lure for trolling in northern waters, and if so, what you suggest I use in place of my dear departed JSR?

I've had good luck with a Rebel Crawfish, in any of the sizes. The best color seems to be the brown with the orange belly. I've had some success with the all natural colored model and a few strikes with the brown with the chartreuse belly.

the best crank bait I ever had was a Rebel Tiny Wee-R with bass body/light gray belly.The thing was like magic catching LOTS of fish but something with a mouth full of sharp teeth took it away years back.I've never seen one anywhere since.There are some that look similar but....

Not sure how far north you consider northern waters, but on Lake Erie just about anything purple or gold. Reef Runners are popular where I live (Huron/ Vermilion), but I have been drifting a lot over the last few years. Gold Erie Dearie w worm seems to be the ticket.
